Focus between 250USD to 300 USD
5 Years ago, this category was un-heard of actually to get a good smartphone you had to be willing to spend more.
Though over the years this a become the hub of every smartphone manufacture. From Samsung, to Xiaomi, to Oppo and Realme.
All the are fighting for a spot on this space and yeah, they are getting it right.
So what are some of the best phones here
1. POCO X3 Pro

The Poco X3 Pro offers a flagship-grade screen, exceptional efficiency, long battery life, and quick charging at an unbeatable price of €249. When you think it can’t get any better, consider splash defense, stereo speakers, a capable camera, and fan-favorite accessibility options. Then you ask how can Xiaomi deliver this at such a low price.
We enjoyed the Poco X3 Pro, and you can easily see that. There is scarcely a poorer player at that price range. Early buyers will have one for around €199.
The Poco X3 Pro provides unrivaled flagship bang for your buck, but it also impresses with touchscreen, speakers, battery, charging, and even camera. This accomplishment, like the first Poco F1, will go down in history, and the X3 Pro gets our unequivocal recommendation.
Full Review here
- Signature design; IP53-rated for dust and splash resistance.
- Large screen with 120Hz refresh and HDR10 support.
- Excellent battery life, fast charging.
- Balanced stereo speakers, good loudness.
- Top notch performance, outstanding stability.
- Dependable cameras day and night, okay selfies.
- Good 4K clips, EIS works, too.
- MIUI 12, Android 11, 3.5mm jack, IR blaster, microSD slot.
- Intriguing launch price
- Somewhat bulky.
- Screen pixel response time isn’t ideal (we are nit-picking here).
We can discuss this for as long as we want, but does it really matter? What you should be considering is whether the market will compete with this bid.
The Realme 7 Pro is a decent fit for the Poco X3 Pro, and it shines with an AMOLED resolution, but it only has a 60Hz refresh rate, and the Snapdragon 720G is no match for the flagship Snapdragon 860. The Realme 8 Pro is on the way, but it seems to be based on camera enhancements rather than screen and/or performance improvements.
The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is a decent gaming-oriented option that costs the same as the Poco X3 Pro. It has an HD 60Hz OLED display and is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset.
Its quad-camera is very capable, and its battery life is absolutely astounding. We know that this Samsung cannot compete with the 120Hz 1080p panel, but it can have 5G and much more battery life while maintaining an equally high level of gaming performance.
Then there is the Poco X3 NFC, which is already less expensive. It has a slightly improved main camera and the same 120Hz screen, but its performance is not as good due to the mid-range Snapdragon 732G processor. It is €50 cheaper than the Pro, but we are not sure if it’s worth it. If you have a budget of €200, you can keep an eye out for early bird Poco X3 Pro offers, which will cost exactly that amount.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro, which costs €250, is a good alternative to the Poco X3 Pro. This Redmi has an even better 120Hz AMOLED screen and a 108MP main camera on the back that is deserving of a flagship device. It complements the stereo speakers, battery capabilities, and IP53-rated body. The Snapdragon 732G, which is not as powerful as the 860, is in possession of everything. You must consider if a better screen and camera are worth the extra 40 percent or so of results.
Finally, if you want a phone like the Poco X3 Pro but with an AMOLED lens, consider the newly launched Poco F3. It is the X3 Pro with a 120Hz OLED and a faster Snapdragon 870 SoC (a repackaged SD865 version), but the microSD slot has been removed. The Poco F3 will retail for €350, but early adopters will be able to purchase it for only €299.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro is so appealing, and it acquitted itself admirably in our tests, that it’s difficult to find any flaws. This is easily our current favorite bang for the buck deal, as well as one of the most straightforward “go for it” offers we’ve published in a long time.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro isn’t flawless, but it has enough flaws to be forgiven and forgotten about. Although the Note wasn’t designed to replace the flagship, it is closing the gap and could soon be breathing down their necks.
- Beautiful design; IP53-rated.
- Excellent 120Hz AMOLED, smooth and responsive.
- Outstanding battery life, fast to charge.
- Very good stereo speakers.
- Dependable performance, no overheating.
- All cameras excel in daylight, photo, and video.
- MIUI 12 is smooth on top of Android 11.
- IR blaster, 3.5mm jack, FM radio, NFC, microSD.
- A higher-grade chipset would have been more exciting.
- No reverse charging.
- The low-light camera quality is mediocre.
- No Night Mode for the ultrawide camera.
- EIS works only on 1080p resolution.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro is without a doubt one of the year’s most famous deals, and it will be difficult to top. Xiaomi has finally put an end to the 60Hz OLED vs. 120Hz LCD debate by placing a 120Hz OLED screen on such an inexpensive handset. What do you think, Realme?
For a long time, Realme has been known for prioritizing 60Hz AMOLEDs over HRR LCDs, and the Realme 7 Pro is one of these examples. The 7 Pro is more expensive than the Redmi Note 10 Pro, but it has a 60Hz OLED display and lower-resolution main (108MP vs. 64MP) and macro (5MP AF vs. 2MP FF) snappers. However, it stands out for its 65W SuperDart Charging. You may want to wait for the Realme 8 Pro, which will be released in a few weeks and will feature a 60Hz OLED, a Helio G95 chip, and a 108MP primary camera.
The Poco X3 NFC and the Redmi Note 10 Pro have a lot in common. It has the same size screen as the previous one, and it runs at 120Hz, but it’s an IPS LCD. It has the same Snapdragon 732G platform, the same speakers, and a 33W charging battery. The Poco X3 NFC also has a quad-camera on the rear, but instead of 108MP + 8MP, the relevant bits – main and ultrawide – are 64MP + 13MP. However, the Poco X3 NFC is €100 less expensive, so if you don’t want to pay extra for an OLED screen, you could find the Poco X3 to be a good fit.
The sum of €280 The Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, like the Poco X3, has a 120Hz LCD screen and, for the most part, matches the rest of the specifications. However, thanks to the Snapdragon 750G 5G SoC, the Mi 10T Lite is capable of 5G, making it a viable alternative to the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
The €250 Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is another incredibly low-cost 5G handset. It has a 6.6-inch 720p AMOLED display and is powered by the Snapdragon 750G 5G processor. It has a similar camera (though the primary sensor is 48MP instead of 108MP) and a 5,000mAh battery. The Galaxy does not have stereo speakers or an IP53 rating, but it is a reliable phone, especially for gaming, and according to our battery life test, it will last you for days.
Three more Redmi Note 10 phones have also been released by Xiaomi. The Redmi Note 10 5G has a 90Hz OLED display and supports 5G, but it lacks stereo speakers and an ultrawide camera. The Redmi Note 10 and Note 10S both have 6.43″ 60Hz OLED screens, stereo speakers, and ultrawide cameras, but their chipsets are different: the N10 has Snapdragon 678, while the 10S has Helio G95. Obviously, neither of these will compete with the 108MP camera and 120Hz screen refresh rate, but if you’re on a budget, they’re worth considering.
3. Realme 8 Pro
Overall rating 3.8
|Body||160.6×73.9×8.1mm, 176g; Glass front, plastic frame, plastic back.|

Clearly, there is just one flaw with the Realme 8 Pro, and that is its initial pricing. The competition has cheaper and/or better options, and the Realme 8 Pro has no place among the €300 smartphones. Realme could be a decent option for individuals on a budget if its price reduces to around €200-€220, but it is not available right now.
Realme appears to have lost steam in the last two years and has run out of ideas for its successful mid-range line. Yes, there are some new features, such as the high-resolution 3x digital zoom, but there are also several downgrades and blatant cost-cutting decisions that are not winning Realme any friends.
So, while the Realme 8 Pro is a good and reliable phone, it’s a little too expensive for its own good. If the price drops, we may consider recommending it ahead of the Realme 9 Pro. However, you can and should get one of the better phones for your money right now.
- Good AMOLED screen, bright, HDR10, small punch-hole.
- Excellent battery life, fast charging.
- Runs well most of the games.
- Great photo and video quality in broad daylight.
- We like the 3x (almost) lossless zoom.
- Lovely Android 11 + Realme 2.0 UI combo.
- 3.5mm jack, tri-card slot with standalone microSD, FM radio, NFC.
- No ingress protection whatsoever.
- 60Hz screen.
- Aging chip.
- Slow main camera when shooting night photos.
- Not the best photo low-light quality either.
- No stereo speakers.
- There are better phones priced closely to the 8 Pro.
The Realme 8 Pro is a well-balanced smartphone with a well-chosen feature set at an affordable price. It has a Super AMOLED screen, a capable Snapdragon 720G chip, and an intriguing 108MP main camera on the back, making it a more compact and lightweight smartphone than its competitors. The battery life is exceptional, and charging is lightning fast.
The new model, however, is powered by the same SoC as the Realme 6 Pro and Realme 7 Pro. It has the same screen as the Realme 7 Pro, but no dual-speakers, no water-repellent coating, charging is a little slower, and everything except the main camera is the same. What went wrong?
Well, releasing a mid-ranger every six months or so is a difficult task, and upgrading all specs is obviously impossible. Given the escalating chip crisis, we can’t help but believe things aren’t going to get any better for a while.
We understand that the Realme 8 Pro wasn’t designed to persuade Realme 7 and Realme 6 owners to upgrade, even if it would be ideal for business. It is, in fact, yet another refined alternative that will most likely replace some older series on the shelves.
So, the Realme 8 Pro is a good phone, even if upgrading from the 90Hz Realme 6 Pro or the stereo speakers on the Realme 7 Pro isn’t necessary unless you need 3x zoom.
Those phones, by the way, are still available and sell for a fraction of the price of the 8 Pro, so we recommend checking them out.
The problem is that the Realme 8 Pro is up against insurmountable competition outside of its bubble, and if it collapses, Realme won’t be able to compete with similarly priced phones.
Let us have a look at the Redmi Note 10 Pro 6/128GB, which costs the same as the Realme 8 Pro 6/128GB edition – €300 (in India, it’s INR 1,000 less). The new Redmi is a dual-glass phone (as opposed to the glass plastic Realme 8 Pro), with an IP53-rated shell (nothing on the 8 Pro), a far superior 120Hz AMOLED (vs. 60Hz AMOLED), dual speakers (vs. one), and a bigger battery (5,020mAh vs. 4,500mAh).
Then there is the Poco F3 – it is €50 more expensive than the Realme 8 Pro, though the early birds should be able to get it at €300 for a limited time. The F3 impresses with a sleek glass body and a metal frame, a 120Hz AMOLED screen, the second most powerful Qualcomm chip to date – the Snapdragon 870 5G, there are stereo speakers, an equally large battery, and the same RAM and storage. The F3 omits a 3.5mm jack and a microSD slot, and these are the only concerns we have and things that won’t stop us from recommending it over the Realme 8 Pro.

The Samsung Galaxy A32 5G is an excellent 5G smartphone for around 300 Euros ($357) as a standalone device, with high system performance, extended battery life, and handy features like an audio port and a radio receiver.
However, as compared to the predecessor, the panel quality is the most significant flaw. It’s less significant that an AMOLED display is no longer utilized, because a PWM-free option is always desirable in this price range. The built-in TFT LCD, on the other hand, appears to have been picked haphazardly, since it demands the user to make compromises in all aspects, including brightness, contrast, and pixel density.
The decreased pixel density, on the other hand, contributes to the enhanced battery life compared to the Galaxy A31.
The Samsung Galaxy A32 5G asks its customers to make a few concessions, but it’s a dependable daily companion with a long battery life and quick system performance.
The storage configuration in the base model should have been a little more liberal; in particular, two extra gigabytes of RAM would have made the A32 5G more future-proof.
There are clearly better options than the A32 5G at full price, but we expect the smartphone to become significantly less expensive in the future, making it a compelling option.

The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is a low-cost 5G mid-ranger that excels at all it does, including gaming, surfing, entertainment, and business apps. It boasts a huge AMOLED screen and a huge battery that will keep you going for a long time. So, yeah, the Galaxy A42 5G appears to be a good guy.
However, it is neither the cheapest nor the finest deal in this class. Xiaomi and Realme both sell phones with high-resolution and high-refresh displays that are also less expensive. They can’t provide an OLED display, therefore the only way to match the Galaxy A42 in games is to decrease the resolution manually, if feasible.
In reality, if you’re buying a €300 5G phone for gaming, the most crucial question you should ask yourself is whether you want to mess with settings for every single game, or if you’ll be satisfied with a terrific performance on this natively 720p screen, and an OLED at that.
- Bright Super AMOLED screen, small notch
- Eye-catchy design
- Outstanding battery life
- Flagship-grade performance
- Very good photo quality, day and night
- Impressive 4K clips from the main cam
- Android 10 and OneUI 2.5 are snappy and easy to use
- 720p screen
- No stereo speakers
- Slow to charge
- The macro photos aren’t that good

The Moto G60 is not a horrible phone in and of itself, but it relies on the wrong qualities to attract users. The camera’s 108MP sensor and hefty design aren’t likely to wow anyone. The Moto G60’s lengthy battery life and clean software, on the other hand, are undeniably strong assets. Although an AMOLED panel would have helped the display lose some bezels, the G60’s LCD panel is adequate. I would recommend the Redmi Note 10 Pro over the Moto G60 for a more complete smartphone experience, but if you like clean software and good battery life, the latter will suffice.
My recommendation for a cheap 108MP camera phone is the Realme 8 Pro. With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 powering it, the POCO X3 Pro (review) is the finest option in its segment if performance is important to you.
- Clean software
- Big battery
- 120Hz display works well.
- Cameras are overrated.
- Extremely bulky

The Poco F3 is a fantastic smartphone with unrivaled performance at an affordable price. This, together with the excellent HRR AMOLED display, makes it an instant recommendation. There is more, though.
We enjoy how the manufacturer went above and above by including features like stereo speakers, rapid charging on the huge battery, and even a premium-looking design. Of course, the Poco F3 is not flawless. Only the main camera produces satisfactory results, and there is no 3.5mm connector, microSD card, or certified IP classification.
Nonetheless, in a price range of €300-€350, the Poco F3 is difficult to match, much alone beat in most areas, and it will undoubtedly become the first choice for many potential consumers. And if they can get past the camera’s shortcomings, they’ll like the F3 as much as we did.
- Stunning design with a premium build.
- Excellent AMOLED screen, 120Hz refresh rate.
- Outstanding battery life, fast to charge, too.
- Class-leading performance, 5G connectivity.
- Good stereo speakers.
- Good daylight photo and video quality.
- Latest Android and MIUI.
- Competitive price.
- No 3.5.mm jack, no microSD, no FM radio.
- Ultra-wide camera is mediocre in both photos and videos.
